The pieces I selected are a reflection of my style and personal collection. 

My Selection:

A pair of Louis XV chased, open-work and gilded bronze fire-dogs (chenets), at Kraemer Gallery - Paris

Nothing can light up a fireplace better than these gilded bronze fire dogs. The mix of modern and traditional has a way of bringing sparkle to any room.

Jean DunandVase, ca. 1925, at DeLorenzo Gallery

Jean Dunand’s incredible style of working with cracked egg shells and metal is just supreme and very technical. His work creates a beautiful scenario for any room.

Marino MariniCavaliere, 1947, at Connaught Brown

Ever since I saw the artwork of Mario Marini in the home of Peggy Guggenheim in Venice, I became a fan and a collector of his work.

Jean Royère“Nuage” wall-light,  ca. 1959 at Galerie Chastel-Maréchal

This work speaks of contemporary lighting with its timeless quality.

Paul Dupré-LafonMeuble d’appui, 1935, at Galerie Chastel-Maréchal

Paul Dupré-Lafon is known for his mid-century artistry, perfecting the concept of mixing different elements together.

Ogawa MachikoHekiyū haban: Torn Sculpture with Blue-green Translucent Glass, 2014, at Joan B. Mirviss Ltd.

I have always loved Japanese pottery! This particular piece looks like cool water in which one can view their own reflection.
